Isn’t it great when your favorite TV show has characters from all over the world? A lovely Spanish or a funny Indian accent can always make a show interesting but cultural presentation is what brings awe to the viewers life. I am presenting you with the three best TV shows that will add colors to your to-watch list!
Featured: The Big Bang Theory
Lately, I’ve been re-watching a lot of tv shows I used to watch growing up. Even though it makes perfect sense, I was really surprised how different was my point of view now, than it was ten or fifteen years ago. Suddenly, my favorite characters aren’t the favorites anymore. Besides, I’ve forgotten tons of what was happening, that’s why I had so much fun re-watching everything. I highly suggest you do the same thing!

Wednesday Addams is proving to be the authentic female protagonist that we all need in the relatively new Netflix Series- Wednesday. We have seen the development of several strong female protagonists in the past decade across different movies and series. Katniss Everdeen taught us to stand up for injustice. Hermione Granger taught us to embrace our intelligence. And Arya Stark taught us to be strong, skilled and resilient. Wednesday embodies much of the 21st-century portrayals of females in media. But makes Wednesday the Ultimate female protagonist of the year?
